A second player has signed the franchise tag tender used on him earlier this week.
Scherff was tagged last season, which means that the salary of the tag is a 20 percent raise over last year’s total. That leaves Scherff in line to make a guaranteed salary of just over $18.03 million if he plays out the year under its terms.
Washington and Scherff could still reach agreement on a long-term deal. They have until July 15 to work on such an agreement.
In addition to Moton and Scherff, seven other tags were doled out this week. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott got one of them, but he will play under the terms of his four-year, $160 million contract extension.
